people need to understand that the republicans put us in this situation, because when bill clinton left office, he left with a surplus. the republicans spent all the money. we went into recession. then president obama came on scene, and he brought us out of the recession, and it takes money to get out of recession. now they are trying to blame him for all of the spending. mitch mcconnell, he is a disgrace to the senate floor. he said he one of the president to be a one-term president. the people voted obama back in. host: the minority leader, mitch mcconnell, has been negotiating with the vice president joe biden to come to some sort of agreement. what you make of that? caller: i'm talking about what mitch mcconnell said in the beginning. he did not want to work with this president. the want it to see him fail. they're hurting the american people by not helping obama. obama is good for the country, but people that listen to rush limbaugh, sarah palin, and fox news, that is why this country is going down like this. host: let me get your thoughts on president obama as a negotiator. what d

is in this measure. tax increase or taxes to -- would go back to the clinton levels for people who make $400,000 a year, or households that make $450,000 a year. and there would be an extension of unemployment benefits for some 2 million americans. we would see an increase in the estate tax, but not an absolute increase to what it was going to be. and they're still working out whether or not there will be a delay in these jump -- these big spending cuts. now, this is -- a lot of this is a big democratic win and the reason we're seeing such a democratic win is because they do need so many democratic votes. especially in the house of representatives, for this to succeed. there are spending cuts in this that would still be included in order to get republicans on their -- on the team. and that hasn't been detailed. why? because it was the president talking to democrats. we have to hear from the republican side, joe, to get the republican spin on what is in the package. there is a lot more to talk about from the president's perspective, a lot of people are asking me who is behind him, but i'll le

campaigned on it, $250,000 threshold for family income for the return to the clinton jer gentleman tafrm rates of 39.6. republicans didn't want tax increases on anybody. democrats wanted more on estate tax. they are getting it. not as much as the president proposed in his budget. so the magic of these deals is that everybody can describe something as victory. and if we get it, if democrats ultimately can come to an accord with republicans on the length of the deferral of the automatic across the board cuts, that's the final key. and somebody's going to have to give on that. democrats are holding firm because they think they've given more. >> john, can you reiterate for us, please, the details of the deal as your reporting has indicated. >> on the biggest piece, the middle class tax cuts, there is a tentative agreement to raise the top rate on taxes to 39.6, clinton era rates for individuals who make over $400,000 and couples who make over $450,000. that's the threshold. also above the threshold, cap gains and dividends from 20% to 15. those are the basics on middle class taxes. on estate
with these negotiations. here are some of the things that are on it. taxes would rise to return to the clinton error rates for families making over 450,000 year to may individuals making more than 400 to a back to the top rate of 36%. there would be a permanent fix to the alternative minimum tax, which is something that congress patches every year. it affects about 30 million people and is worth about 90 billion per year. that would get fixed permanently according to the sources. the estate tax would go from 35% to 40% on the more than 5 million. those under 5 million would not get taxed at all. the deal also throws in extended jobless benefits for another year. again, they're trying to work on figuring out how to mitigate or delay these sequestration spending cuts. there is some talk about putting them off for a couple of months to give congress some time to really look into it in a more deliberative way and find some spending cuts elsewhere. gerri: so, where is the fiscal austerity? where is then no spending? is seems to me like it's all about raising taxes. it's all about spending more money. there is
it on the special that we did last night. secretary of state hillary clinton is in a new york hospital this morning being treated from a blood clt clot resulting from a concussion you suffered earlier this month. she had been expected to return to work this week. >>> coming up, deal or no deal? we're going to look beyond the fiscal cliff and what it will mean for the markets. we have jim o'neill. he's going to join us to talk about whether he is bullish for the start of 2013 and how much the fiscal cliff is playing into his outlook. >>> welcome back to "squawk box" this morning. take a look at futures for the day, the s&p is up a little over 7 points as we await to see what happens with the fiscal cliff. >> it is the last trading day of the year. how will the global marketses react to our domestic drama? calling in right now on the squawk news line is jim o'neill. it's great to be speaking with you this morning. i know we made it through the mayan apocalypse, but will we make it three through the fiscal cliff, as well? >> gosh, i don't know. i keep exchanging my mind about this every day in the pas

and afghanistan mentioned just now, here's a piece in the paper -- some other stories in the news, hillary clinton, secretary of state, we are seeing some updates on her condition and what is going on for her. we will look at that in just a moment to see how she is staring. but there's a piece by parker in the washington post, more of a conservative writer -- so that is in the washington post today. for the latest on how hillary clinton is doing, we will look at "usa today" story that says she's getting blood thinners for the blood clot. her doctors are expecting her to be released from hospital to make a full recovery. we are asking what you think about house passage of the fiscal cliff bill, 257-167. john is a republican in hot springs village, arkansas. caller: good morning and happy new year. basically, the way this is impacting the personally is the income tax increase for the wealthy, that does not affect me. the unemployment benefits extension, that does not affect me. the payroll tax going back up, which is it should go into their social security account in the first place, that does not a
'll recap what those are. a higher clinton era top rate of 39.6% for individuals above $400,000 income, couples above $450,000 income. capital gains and dividend rates going from 15% to 20% for people in the top income brackets. you've got an estate tax that goes from 35% to 40% for estates valued at over $5 million. you've got a phaseout of deductions and tax credits at incomes above $250,000 for individuals, $300,000 for couples. that is a concession for the president. and our colleague steve leisman has been also doing reporting on this. he just spoke to me by phone as i was preparing to go on with a source familiar with the talks who noted a wind energy tax credit is preserved as the president eluded to in his remarks. also depreciation for businesses with spending money on new equipment. all of those things arement wills of the tax deal, but until they get the sequester, the budget elements worked out, the deal's not going to be finished. >> now, the deduction phaseout. this is relatively new. any idea at this point which deductions we're talking about and any timetable for them?
th team, day of the surrender, the day that greece and clinton sailed from new york to yorktown to provide the reinforcements. it just so happened that canada is commanded by cornwallis' younger brother. which then brings me to the last bucket of discovery. so what i would call paper and preservation discoveries. prior to 1870, before transition to what pope, newspapers are printed on rockland stock, paper made primarily off the backs of the colonists, what people wore his clothes. these bags were oiled and poked him ultimately sifted into the sheets of paper and the durability of the paper plays a significant role in the preservation in that today we can find 250 open newspapers in better position than last week's "boston globe," which is probably yellowing impartial. thanks to the paper on which they are printed and thanks to the institution for long-term storage, we have these printed accounts of what transpired during the american revolution. what i tend to do is look for newspapers others might consider trash that are extremely beat up, households, lived a long life enter f

[sighs] and i am blanking on what thispc possibly could be. meredith, i'm question. meredith: no problem. question out of play. let's see the correct answer. julia roberts and hillary clinton. >> ok. meredith: now let's see what you jumped over. all the money's on the board. it could be any amount here. $1,000. not the worst-case scenario by any means. not bad. meredith: and by jumping over that money, you are one question closer to the million, now just 13 questions away."ancient tren "ancient trends" is the next category. finding 57 of them preserved on a 5,300-year-old mummy, scientists had to rethink the origins of what body decoration? tattoos, bracelets, piercings, necklaces. >> ha ha ha! tattoos. that makes sense if that's on a mummy. piercings would, too. my goodness. i'm not getting this one, either, meredith. i'm gonna have to jump this question. meredith: ok, we're gonna jump again. it's out of play. the right answer, please? the correct answer
gave obama the ability to say to you, not good enough. we send welfare reform down to clinton three times, and he vetoed it the first two times. we didn't start by reaching an agreement, we started by doing something. if the house republicans would say to every single subcommittee -- and there are a ton of subcommittees -- every one of you is going to hold hearings on waste in government, so why don't you go back home, and they could create 1-800-waste. [laughter] okay? probably technically a few more letters in there, so i'll let you add whatever the right number are to get to the number for the phone company. or to put it online which is a better way to do it and also have it available in a variety of other formats and say, look, you send us everything you think we should hold hearings on. how many americans do you think could find one or two or three items of waste that they would be willing to suggest congress hold a hearing on? so within the first two or three weeks you'd have five million suggestions. and you could say, look, this is what he wants to raise taxes for. somebody
is that if the threshold goes up to that level, the top income tax rate would go all the way back up to the clinton era rate of 39.6%. not some mid point of 37% talked about a couple of weeks ago. secondly, that it would be accompanied by more revenue from the estate tax than is happening under current policy. remember, current policy is 35% tax on estates of $35 million or more. democrats are going to be insisting on somewhat more revenue than that, if not all the way up to the level in president obama's budget. finally, that an agreement would include a significant extension of unemployment benefits. remember, there are 2 million people who would lose about $300 a week if this fiscal cliff passes and there's no deal whatsoever. guys, back to you in d.c. >> all right. john harward, thanks for keeping us posted. we're about six minutes before the bell rings in the final session of 2012. let's bring in matt. good to have you with us. the futures are not too bad. we're coming off five straight losing streaks. on friday we saw the vix post the low of the session. what do you think it will happen today? >>
's all bill clinton's be fivefold, and starting in the 1990's, moderate republicans began leaving the party in large numbers and places like the counties around philadelphia, said the john heinz republicans are not republicans any more and you have created an entirely different electorate to witness what happened in delaware or indiana. i will leave that there and somebody can comment. thank you. >> thank you. first of all -- [laughter] one is from robert kelley that is a student at the american university, and he says if there is a systemic problem what changes to the panel's feel are the most he is a self-described aspiring policy analyst and the voters getting what they deserve and what are they going to wait on? >> they look at the politicians, no great shakes. >> welcome first there are systemic problems and have this book is about what not to do. this is not something that is going to be solved by tinkering with the institutions or even the institutional set up. xu some degree it is a cultural problem and that is the tribal politics. and it's also built into a broad media sy
voting rights act. president clinton johnson told dr. king in so many words, we don't have the votes in the congress to get it out of my sight pass. dr. martin luther king junior came back to atlanta, but with a group of us. my organization was already involved. and selma, the harder the bite. the only time a person could even attempt to register to vote for the first and third mondays of each month. you had to go up a set of steps through double doors and get a copy of the so-called leaders attack. and very few people were able to pass that. a few days, late february 1963, 1965, and there is a protest in marion, alabama 35 miles from selma. marion, alabama is the hometown of martin luther king jr. an incident occurred. a young man or the name of jamel jackson tried to protect his mother by a state trooper in a few days later he died at a local hospital and selma. because of what happened to him, we decided to march from selma to montgomery. since sunday, march 7, 1965 to about this time of day, 600 of us participated in nonviolent workshop. we line up in twos to a 50 master and selm
to the clinton era rate of 39.6% on incomes of $400,000 for individuals, $450,000 for married couples. on the estate tax, the inheritance tax, you see that going from 35% to 40% on estates of $5 million. although the value of that exemption is indexed for inflation. you see on capital gains and dividends the rate going from 15% to 20% on those top earners. now, secondly, you see a round of other changes, you see on the doc fix for medicare. you prevent the decline in medicare payments to medicare providers. you extend unemployment benefits for a year. you see that the payroll tax does not continue. that is going to be a tax increase for average families. those are some of the details that we've got on this bill. but it does not deal with the debt ceiling. it does not put off the sequester indefinitely. the -- it's only for two months we put off the sequester. so we're going to have to see how that is resolved. the alternative minimum tax was also permanently fixed. that's very expensive, because it protects tens of millions of families from having their incomes go up because they woul
rates revert to where they were in the clinton years and remember that only affects half of the taxpayers in the country because only half of the people pay income tax so it's not 97%. it's actually only the top half. and that may not be so -- such a bad consequence from his point of view. it also brings in a significant amount of revenue, which allows him to spend in the way that i think he'd like to do, so it could take a good bit of pressure off of him and, you know, i'm just concerned that he may not feel the same pressure to keep taxes low as the rest of us do. he probably is not a believer that high tax rates would impede the economy at least not to the same extent that i believe that. >> yeah. finally, you know, a lot of the bulls who are encouraging investors to get into the market over the next 12 months say that cap x would come back even with a band-aid, that companies with all their cash and their refinancings have money to spend and that they will spend it in the new year. are you seeing any empirical evidence that suggests that is actually so? >> well, i'm n
key deal with tip o'neill and bill clinton did on welfare reform and president eisenhower in korea, we need two words -- presidential leadership. we need to do both and the president has to eat it, and if he does i am ready to work with him. >> let me add to that. to get back, i agree with everything lamar just said, but there is a tremendous direction of duty here. you have a congress that has spent two years debating, we have written legislative language. i want to hearken back to the fact that i offered a bill that laid out all these entitlement reforms that walmart has joined in supporting, but also had revenues in it come almost $1 trillion. i get a copy of that bill to the white house, to boehner, 2 pelosi, and said here is a way to solve this problem. there will be other ideas, but it is pretty amazing that we know the number one problem in our country is our fiscal solvency. every developed country knows that the greatest issue we face is a our fiscal solvency. economists on both sides have said this is the greatest problem we face. here we are on december 29 without a serious
